King Bees

Info kindly supplied by John Maughan who was the drummer

The group played at most of the clubs and halls around the area between 1965 and 1969. They had regular bookings at Coundon Club, Willington Victory Club and the Grange at Belmont (only the big venues for them says John :>)

Other members were Dave Edwards on lead guitar, Geoff Bowden on Rhythm and John Torr on bass (who, sadly,  passed away last year).

The King Bees used to rehearse in Dave's front room at Witton Park and The Styx used to practise NEXT DOOR.

I'll bet the neighbours were over the moon

We'd love a pic of the King Bees if anyone has one.
